AWESOME experience! We came on Friday with pupils who use wheelchairs due to profound disabilities during their weeks residential school trip (holiday). Nothing was too much trouble. Polite, helpful, kind and understanding staff. We were ferried up and down in the lift. We arrived about 10 mins late but they'd waited patiently for us. We were offered a choice of... More

The light is an excellent cinema. Great choice of films Inc live theatre performances. Comfy seats lots of leg room. Only negative is price of tickets particularly as the Odeon is significantly cheaper.

The Light Cinema is on the new development area at New Brighton promenade, set amongst a number of eateries. The Cinema screens the latest releases as well as a "one off" performance of Opera/Musicals/Theatre events. The seats are very comfortable and there is also a café area where you can have a drink before or after your visit. No problem... More

The Light offers a range of the latest movies and also link screenings with the National Theatre, the Globe etc. Seats are very comfortable, no extra charge for 3D films and free hot drinks for older customers during the day. Ticket prices are lower than in Liverpool. All in all an excellent cinema experience.

I really like the Light Cinema but they do not serve proper decaf coffee. It is offered out of a jar and as usual the price is the same for purchasing real ordinary coffee. There is no excuse for not serving good decaf coffee these days when coffee machines do all the work!

It's a good cinema even if it's expensive. They have lots of snacks and refreshments on offer as you enter including popcorn,hotdogs,nachos,slush,pop and sweets. The decor of the cinema is lovely and very modern with lots of modern artworks such as paintings. Like I said it is expensive but which is why I took away a star.
